Cocktails & Conversations launches with speed dating event May 9

POSTED: May 2, 2013 1:00 a.m.

Cocktails & Conversations will have its grand opening at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 9, at Scott’s Downtown in Gainesville. The mixer and speed dating event is for single professionals ages 30 and older.

Reservations are required. Cost is $20 and paid at the time of reservation through PayPal.

Participants are encouraged to wear business casual attire. A cash bar will be available at Scott’s Downtown.

Cocktails & Conversations is a dating event company created by four women living in Northeast Georgia who realized the frustration of singles with the lack of opportunity to meet other singles. Not wanting to jump into the bar scene, the women sought a solution addressing the issues of time, money and location.

The owners chose speed dating because first impressions, mutual attraction and chemistry are key. Speed dating gives singles the opportunity to spend a few minutes with other like-minded singles.

Men and women are paired up on mini-dates averaging 5 minutes. At the end of each date, participants simply move on to the next date.

To protect the participants privacy and avoid awkward pressure to accept or reject an offer from a potential suitor, contact information is not traded at the event. At the end of the evening, each participant submits a list of potential people he or she would like to meet again to the organizer. Only when two people are interested in meeting one another is contact information forwarded.
